A Message From Dr. Parent

All of you have been exceptional with wearing masks in school, keeping your learning space clean, and respecting distances when you are asked to. However, we are noticing an issue with students when they leave the campus.

A number of community members have expressed great concern that some students are not wearing masks or maintaining appropriate distances when they leave school grounds. While we cannot control what you do when you are off of school property, we do expect that you help assure the community of Glen Rock that safety remains paramount, even outside of the school.

We are requesting that you wear a mask and respect the community's expectations for social distancing when you are walking around town or are gathered in groups after school hours.

We thank you, in advance, for your assistance and attention to this matter.
